View Full Version : What if 1 more...

If you could buy only one more knife for the rest of your life what would it be?

I would want a 270mm gyuto from Mario with bogoak and musk ox.

01-06-2013, 08:57 PM
The 240mm custom gyuto Marko Tsourkan is going to make for me. :cool2:

01-06-2013, 09:01 PM
LOL, will wait until I get it, but also waiting on a Marko. I have not tried all the custom makers (yet, for the forum members as I can never see myself paying Kramer prices), so the nicest knife I own is a mid-tech DT...or two.

01-06-2013, 09:37 PM
I am pretty set on my knives. I am not wanting for anything, but.....I would would like to try one from Spike.

My Devin Thomas Turkish Twist Damascus 250mm gyuto. (Under mental construction)

01-06-2013, 09:46 PM
Me too... A custom from Devin...

Maybe a 240mm damascus gytuo from Michael Rader, or a unique concoction that Randy and I can come up with! Or some Sanmai from Pierre... Y have a hard time deciding.... Any if those could be my last knife.

Im also liking something cool from Will C.... His knives are awesome! :razz:

Hey! Were just dreaming... Right?

Gesshin Hide blue#1 Honyaki 270 gyuto that Chuck nabbed.
Then I'd ask mhenry to lace it with a sexy handle, maybe bog oak.

Probably this beast from Mizuno:

But with it sitting in the $6k region, it's probably a pipe dream.

Since I still actually have to buy it, a 260mm gyuto san mai with some of that super special steel/heat treat. If it was just I get to have one more knife without having to purchase it, besides the obvious Kramer (because its free and we all would like to have one) I'd go with a Rodrique feather Damascus scimitar, or just something bat sh!t crazy from those two nuts at HHH customs.

Well, I have a Burke lined up to be done soon so that is already a done deal. Two knives I really want before I consider myself done are a Rader, and I will put myself on his list after the delivery of my Burke. Finally, I have known Marko for quite some time and know he is a man of perfection. I got on his list a long time ago but have yet to hear from him. I really want one of his knives, from my time knowing him I know it will speak volumes. Not one, but it's how it is.

I wwould leave that spot open....

Coming from Japan though.

Some kind of honyaki?

Marko with DT damascus

01-07-2013, 02:41 PM
I could never decide...I would have trouble deciding between:

W2 Harner Wa-gyuto with ironwood and copper, with full polished hamon

A "murdered out" Rodrigue gyuto with a premium stainless, so I could never worry about it, and just beat the snot out of it for the next 50 years

See above, but change the steel to a carbon of Pierre's choice

A 225 "line knife" by Mike Davis with a handle of his choice, done in W2

A DT custom. Maker's choice.

A TC yanagi

The Mario gyuto I had, but sold....

Man, the list goes on and on.

No more Blue from Carter...

01-07-2013, 02:59 PM
Oh, and a Rader, like Matt's crazy takobiki looking line knife.

I have one of these in 225 and always found the ironwood handle a bit clunky, it just never ocurred to me to have it reshaped by someone. Thanks for mentioning that.

Other than that, I have no idea what ONE knife I would want, there are so many great ones just by the active makers on this forum. It would probably be a low maintenance 250-ish gyuto.


01-07-2013, 04:30 PM
Either a dt custom gyuto in feather Damascus or a Burke gyuto for sure.

It would be between:

A. 240/270 White Steel Enryu Kurouchi Damascus Gyuto by Tsukasa Hinoura.

B. Hunting/Outdoor adventure knife from Carter. I could skin an elk, chop up some wood chunks for a fire, and cook meal afterwards following a quick touch up on a stone.

Not that I have ever skinned any wild game, but it is nice to have the option.

That sexy cleaver Will C made about a month ago. After that, I don't know....

01-12-2013, 10:49 AM
Once i get my Marko custom im set! Mario and Marko knives complement each other very well dont think i could ever wish for another gyuto

daddy yo yo
01-12-2013, 12:32 PM
for me, it would most likely be a hattori kd 240mm gyuto.

or a gyuto made by marko tsourkan, even thought i haven't tried one yet... still i wake up and the first thing i think about is one of marko's knives...:eyebrow:

01-12-2013, 12:52 PM
Masamoto 270mm KS Honyaki Gyuto.

01-16-2013, 10:47 AM
I'd probably get a Harner 270 kiritsuke-gyuto, like Pensacola's and have it over with.
Then I'd just have to get a bigger kitchen...
